Pakistan: couple falls victim to honour killing

with one comment

Honour killing took the lives of yet another couple here in the Sherakot area of district Kohistan in the wee hours of Monday. Sources said Saleem, son of Mairaj, and Khazana Bibi, wife of Rawan Shah, were allegedly shot dead on suspicion of having illicit relations.

Couple falls victim to honour killing.

This happens after the monstruous killing of five women (three teenagers and two relatives who wanted to protect them) by being buried alive. For a background on this story, read here and here.

Also the rate of rapes is growing in Karachi: at least 100 rapes a day.
